Feeling the Rhythm

Salsa_Day

Emily Alabi, a World Salsa Dancing Champion, paid our Mackenzie-Scott Branch a special visit on March 18, hosting a dance workshop for our members. Alabi has competed all over the world with her brother and now teaches clinics and conferences all over the world. During her visit she talked about growing up in a tough neighborhood and the many challenges she and her brother faced while being raised by a single father. But, she told our members, she continually pushed to realizer her dream of being a dancer and teacher and can now make a living by doing just that. Because of the people who believed in her, she said, she can share her gift with others who have the same dream.
